Yousef Al Otaiba, the UAE's ambassador to the United States, confirmed on Thursday that the country's first female fighter pilot was involved in recent action against ISIL.
He discussed the UAE's commitment in combating ISIL and fighting extremism on the live-broadcast American television show Morning Joe, a weekday morning talk show on MSNBC.
Mr Al Otaiba also confirmed that Major Mariam Al Mansouri, 35, an F-16 pilot, will lead the air strike missions on ISIL.
The UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, Bahrain and the United States have allied to launch a series of air strikes against members of ISIL in Syria to combat extremists.
During the show, Mr Al Otaiba said: "We will bring whatever it takes to defeat ISIS [ISIL] and other forms of extremism."
